Against all conventional wisdom, the Nintendo 64 is once America's best selling video game console. While publishers and retailers seem to be abandoning the machine as quickly as possible, the N64 managed to grab 46 percent of American console sales since the March 6 launch of its new series featuring translucent case colors. Playstation was a close second with 43 percent, while Dreamcast languished at 11 percent. Nintendo gives some of the credit for the rebound in sales to the new colors, but it may be the demand for Nintendo's Pokemon Stadium that is truly responsible. "During March, sales of the Nintendo 64 jumped 30 percent from the same month a year ago, while those of our nearest competitor plunged 32 percent," says Nintendo's Peter Main, "we expect another five to 10 million pieces of N64 hardware to be sold."
